CA Sand Dollar Beach Trail
Marker Description: This is a short hike from the parking lot - out and back with stairs that lead down to the largest crescent of sandy beach in Big Sur, set below the dramatic Pacific Valley cliffs.

Locating the trail:

After parking, look to the northwest corner of the lot for the sign and head straight northwest on the gravel path. Before going down to the beach, head to the right and take the short trail to the overlook. The overlook has a great view of the entire beach and is also a great place to watch whales and dolphins as they move up and down the coast. Then take the switch backing wooden staircase down to the beach.


The guide books will tell you that you will be protected from the wind on this beach and this is the only place we found that this was true!
